This is the highly rated mini monitor from 47 Labs. They make two versions of this speaker and this one is the one with the Alnico magnet in its 4″ full range driver (the one without the Alnico magnet is the Model 4722). This same driver is also used in their EN-KUU floor standing speaker that sells for $15,000 and more (depending on finish). Which is not surprising since it took 47 Labs five years to design this very special full range driver. Sensitivity is 85 dB with a nominal impedance of 4 ohm. Speakers measure 6.3″ wide, 10.3″ tall and about 8″ deep. Driving these speakers were pretty easy and when we hooked up their Midnight Blue 4736 integrated amp in our small auditioning room, they were one of the most transparent, pin point sounding speakers we have ever listened to. They are not about large scale musical presentation but bringing the soundstage to an intimate level. The singer is closer, the instruments sit just five feet away and you simply sink into the music. They can be mounted on stands or if they are going to be used as a reference desktop system, they can sit on shelves.
Finish on the speakers are gloss black and speakers look really good with the usual polishing swirl marks here and there. We don’t have the original box but will securely pack them for safe shipping.
